Those who have researched CSG (coal seam gas) will know how counterproductive it is. Sure, it burns cleaner than coal, but the escaping gas from wells etc, which the gas companies have thought to harvest, is 80 times worse than CO2.
Doing the numbers shows that any prime minister who has not done the research, and who supports CSG, would be judged irresponsible. If they have done research and understand the real impacts of CSG, and still support it, then the dollar wins another battle against the people and the environment, and of course, common sense.
